Hillsdale Station is well-connected by several Samtrans bus routes and one AC Transit Transbay Route, making it a hub for services to Foster City, Hillsborough, and San Mateo, with some routes extending north to San Francisco, south to Palo Alto Caltrain, east to Hayward BART (via San Mateo Bridge), and west to Half Moon Bay and Pacifica (weekdays only). This station also has bus service to and from San Francisco International Airport (on Routes 292 and 397).
Hillsdale Station is also served by Samtrans' All Nighter Route 397, an all-night bus service connecting San Francisco, Brisbane, South San Francisco, San Francisco International Airport, and the El Camino Real corridor between Millbrae and Palo Alto Caltrain via East Palo Alto.
Bay Meadows station
Until December 20, 2005 the former Bay Meadows Racetrack had the now-closed Bay Meadows station, less than a half-mile (800 m) north of Hillsdale. When Hillsdale was renovated the platform was extended a few hundred feet to the north, eliminating the need for the separate station. Hillsdale is now the closest station to the former racetrack area.
